The Oxford History of Australia: 1942-1988. The middle way
Oxford University Press, 1993 - Australia - 352 pages
Increased dependence on the United States, an influx of European and Asian immigrants, and a series of economic booms and recessions have confronted postwar Australians with the challenge of surviving as an offshoot of European civilization in a largely Asian region and securing a prosperous future with declining support from European markets and investment. This final volume in the Oxford History of Australia shows that while some Australians have resisted the pressures for change, most have adapted to the task of creating a new nation able to survive into the 21st century.
